Larger text is not well supported.

I find after I search for a book I’m not able to check it out. Because I ‘m using larger text on my phone it over fills the screen and the button to check out is at the bottom of the screen and does not respond to being pressed. I checked this out by reducing my text size and that fixed the problem. Otherwise I think the app works well.

Fantastic App, but lacks full profile features

My family and I are frequent library goers. I love that I can manage holds, renew books, browse the catalogs, and pull up my library card from anywhere. It’s a seamless app, my only disappointment is that there is no way to access my profile’s book lists or bookshelf like I can on my computer browser. I use these features all the time to organize which books I want to read later, what books my kids enjoyed so I remember them for another time, and what books I found useful for different topics. But these features aren’t available on the app. So I have to make a note on my phone and do it on my computer. Would give the app 5 stars if they just updated this one thing.

Love using it for searching the stacks and for mobile checkout

Since downloading this app, anytime someone at a party recommends a book to me, I pull it up, search for the book, and place a hold right there. Also, when I’m at the library, it’s helpful to have the call number available on my phone, instead of having to run back and forth from the catalog computers with a tiny slip of paper, the coolest feature, though, is the mobile checkout, where you can scan a book with your phone to check it out to yourself 😱 thanks BPL!
